Learning what an adjective is in a fun, student centered game! All kiddos will be smiling during and after this activity! I’ve done this for years and get so much joy out of watching students beam over what their friends say about them. (This year, our school is becoming an IB school, so I’ve incorporated IB attitudes and attributes as well on a separate sheet. These are just great character education terms if you do not teach at an IB school.)
Each child has a heart passed to them to glue an adjective on, and at the end, they end up with their own back, covered in adjectives from their friends! (You can also use a mini body silhouette or a booklet as an end of year or friendship activity.)
Included is a full sheet of 32 adjectives titled “Valentine Adjectives”, the same sheet titled “Friendship Adjectives” if you are using it for a friendship/end of year unit, and a third with PYP/IB attitudes/attributes. You can copy both for the students or even one and half as the IB sheet repeats quite a few. 32 on a sheet means 32 students possible or give a few extra rows for your students to choose from.)
All directions are included for the activity and a pattern template for a heart as well.
